• The literacy program at J.C. Booth Middle School is committed to helping our students become more avid and complete readers.  Students will receive direct instruction on a variety of skills that will help them better analyze and critically dissect a given text.  Students will study texts related to literature, science, social studies, and math.  With guided instruction from the reading teachers, students will also study Latin and Greek word stems that will lead to expanded vocabularies along with a better understanding of the English language.  Finally, students will be encouraged to read independently in various genres of interest to promote improved fluency.
